The computer graphics technology specialty tracks leading to a certificate expand on the skills achieved in the foundation skills certificate or equivalent experience. These certificates give students the opportunity to expand their design and application skills for a specific career within the graphic design and computer graphics industry. The foundation skills certificate or equivalent skills must be achieved before starting one of the specialty track certificate programs. Classes with no prerequisite can be taken before starting the program.
This certificate prepares students for a career combining the skills of three-dimensional imaging and video production. With the industry’s expansion of computer graphics imaging (CGI), these skills will allow the students to create 3D objects and composite videos with special effects and motion graphics. It creates the opportunity to develop simulations, engineering and architectural visualization for advertising and marketing projects.
Students who satisfactorily complete the program requirements qualify for a certificate of program completion.
